Triberg is the most
visited destination in the Black Forest and for good reason.
The town plays host to a line of souvenir, cuckoo clock, and craft
stores several hundred meters long. Cafes, bakeries, and
restaurants all display signs offering "authentic" Black Forest cake
to visitors. Make sure you taste this exquisite chocolate cake
while you are there--you won't be dissappointed!
The main sights around
town are its tourist shopping district, the
Gutach River Wasserfall, and the
Maria in der Tanne baroque church.
Be forewarned, this
forest town is not for the faint of heart. The town lies on
steep hills, so bring comfortable shoes and come in good physical
condition. Take a look at our
Triberg Map to get directions to the town and to see the Gutach
River hiking route.
